Peru's first female president Dina Boluarte faces uphill battle against impeachment

The first female president of Peru, Dina Boluarte, who came to power on Wednesday after her former boss was ousted and arrested, will need to tread carefully to avoid her recent predecessors' fate of being forced out of office early.

Pedro Castillo was removed from the presidency in an impeachment trial after he tried to dissolve Congress illegally in a bid to stay in power. There were months of instability and two prior impeachment attempts by a hostile legislature.

One of Boluarte's first official acts upon becoming president was to implore for a political truce and pledge to form a broad Cabinet of all ideological stripes.
